  • Publication number: 20200395206
    Abstract: Four rod electrodes (50a to 50d) for separating ions according to a mass-to-charge ratio are held by two rod holders (51). The rod holders (51) are attached to metal holder sustaining stands (52) provided on a bottom surface of a vacuum housing (1). A coating film layer (10) is formed by a black nickel plating process on parts of wall surfaces in the vacuum housing (1), an inlet lens (4), and an outlet lens (6), the parts facing a quadrupole mass filter unit (5). The emissivity of the coating film layer (10) is higher than that of Al or the like, and thus radiant heat from the quadrupole mass filter unit (5) is efficiently absorbed by the coating film layer (10). Therefore, heat generated in the rod holders (51) due to dielectric loss is efficiently dissipated, and deformation of the rod holders can be reduced.

  • Publication number: 20200395207
    Abstract: Four rod electrodes (50a to 50d) for separating ions according to a mass-to-charge ratio are held by a rod holder (51). The rod holder (51) is placed on a metal holder sustaining stand (52) provided on a bottom surface of a vacuum housing (1), and is fixed while being pressed by a fixation band (53) fixed to the holder sustaining stand (52) with screws (56). The fixation band (53) has a coating film layer (532) formed by a black nickel plating process on the entire surface of a main member (531) made from phosphor bronze. The coating film layer (532) has high emissivity, and thus heat transferred from the rod holder (51) to the fixation band (53) is efficiently radiated into the vacuum housing (1). Therefore, heat generated in the rod holder (51) due to dielectric loss is efficiently dissipated, and deformation of the rod holder can be reduced.

  • Publication number: 20190170712
    Abstract: The detection of minute amounts of components that have been undetectable due to an influence of a mobile phase or reagents or the like added to the mobile phase is realized in LC-MS. At the outset, blank measurement is executed, and an m/z value MBG of a background signal derived from a mobile phase or the like is extracted on a mass spectrum obtained by the blank measurement (S2-S4). An analysis method is then created that executes scanning measurement in a plurality of divided m/z ranges in which the m/z value MBG of the background signal has been excluded from a predetermined m/z range. An LC/MS analysis of the target sample is executed according to the analysis method (S5-S6). When a total ion chromatogram (TIC) is created from data obtained by the LC/MS analysis, influence of the background signal hardly appears in the TIC, and the base line is lowered.
